8:03 am
down? >> on i don't think we need a conflict like that. >> hillary clinton is calling for a no-fly zone in syria and opposing president obama. clinton is trying to distance herself from the administration she once served. she came out wednesday against the president's new pacific trade dealing saying it's not the high bar he is set for when she was secretary of state. clinton's trade position is now in line with her main rival on the democratic race bernie sanders who is also against a trade deal and saying it will hurt consumers and take away american jobs. ohio governor john kasich has said he is generally in favor of trade as long as there is a way to make sure workers in the united states are not being cheated. we are pleased to welcome governor kasich to studio 57 again. welcome. >> always great to be with you guys. >> good to have you here, governor. >> feels really good. >> we thank you for that. let's first talk trade. as a governor, you supported trade, as i said, as long as workers are protected. do you support this bill? >> i think so, charlie.
8:04 am
i mean, i haven't seen all of the details. the senate is going to look at it. look. we want to have a strengthened group of people in asia to interface against the chinese. and trade can help do that. my concern about trade is when countries dump material into our country. we wait for a year or two years before we get a resolution as to whether they cheated or not. so by the time we find out they dumped, people are out of work. i think we need an expedited process, somebody to stick up for the american workers. so free trade, but no looking the other way, no bureaucratic slow down. >> you support it? >> i think it's good for the u.s. not only in terms of economics but also in terms of foreign policy. trade can make a difference in strengthening us around the world. >> let's talk about the 2016 presidential race. you've taken a risk in your party differing on a number of issues whether on immigration or

8:06 am
it's not practical. and, by the way, these folks who are here, many of them are creating a wonderful, stronger america. so i think it's compound. i actually think this can pass. in this campaign, we should stop talking about pie in the sky and starting talking about real solutions. i've been a reformer my entire lifetime, but i know how to land a plane and get it done. >> but the question is how are you party moved to the right so far that, as a conservative, a longtime conservative, it's too far right for you and you're too far center for them? >> i think i have a trite to define what the party is, charlie. i mean, look. we have -- i was up in second place in new hampshire. we have come down, but these polls are very volatile. we got the best organization in new hampshire. we are building out in iowa and south carolina. if i win i have a right to dech what the party is and along the way i'm desk what it is. you know what it is? a party of economic growth and economic growth not an end to itself but also can help people who live in the shadows, the

mentally ill, the drug-addicted but those people in their 50s who faced job loss because their company left america or their company shut down, they have become depressed, alienated and lonely and these people have to get opportunity to be trained so they can get work and support their family. i think this is a conservative message. >> let's talk about the poll numbers for just a second. even in your own state, you're down. donald trump is beating you in your own state. people say you're one of the most experienced and one of the most qualified. what do you need to do to break through? what is your strategy and is it frustrating for you, governor? >> first of all, my approval ratizing well over 60% in ohio. i got very little negative and very high positive. nationally my positive high is more. i have a big ceiling because people don't know me yet. you all are experienced. you know places like iowa and new hampshire are launching pads. if i do well in new hampshire,
8:08 am
you're going to have me back every day. >> we won't go that far, governor. >> here is what i wanted to say. you can build a campaign where you rise real fast, but you have no underpinnings. we have seen this sort of with one candidate who led and dropped out. we are building the base to be able to be sustaining. >> let's get out foreign policy here. the big headline today, of course, in syria. and what russia is doing. there are reports that moscow is deliberately targeting u.s.-backed rebel groups. what would you -- >> i'm sure they are now. >> you are sure they are? >> reading the press reports that they are. >> what would you do to stop president putin? >> i called for a no-fly zone a week or two weeks ago or whatever it was as a sang we'arr people. you come into -- >> you would shoot down a russian airplane? >> i said anybody who violates a
8:09 am
no-fly zone there are consequences. >> what is a severe conflict? >> when -- look. when you be commander in chief, you got to be steady and calm. i served on a defense committee for 18 years. okay? just everybody would understand what i'm saying without having to use fiery rhetoric to get a headline, okay? don't violate the no-fly zone. secondly we should have supported those rebels and must continue to support the opposition to assad because it's a iran, assad, russian deal. russians are there. they are there because there was a void but on top of, in the long haul, russia doesn't have the influence there they are seeking in the middle east. we are to reassert ourselves in many different ways and establish a no-fly zone and helping the rebels in training and create ago relationship with the kurds and sunni. we can make a big difference there and send multiple message about the strength of the united states reasserting our leadership. >> governor, who are you picking for your running mate?

in erterms of the inquiry and a possible indictment? >> we have given until october 15th to comrcomply with the fir request of information. this is going to take sometime and i wouldn't prejudge it to suggest there is going to be an indictment but it clearly is an area that requires regulation. i would suggest both internal regulations by the companies and some form of government regulation. unlike our securities markets where there are rules about insider trading and strict guidelines there is nothing here to govern how the employees and they use the data and potential for abuse in fraud is tremendous when you have no regulations at all. >> i think it's important to point out you've found no wrong dog does so far? >> we have found no wrongdoing at this point. they were quick to clear their one employee of no wrongdoing. we are all going to be looking at it at the same time and i know that they want fan

8:36 am
>> 1984, 1988 and 1998. >> do you feel a bigger responsibility when you're writing about a real person, especially a real person so well known? >> yes. the approach aaron and i took was rather than try to skim across the whole life, when facts become absolutely essential, it's we took three -- the three occasions and you can go behind the scenes of an industry. one of the industries that he revolutionized products launches and introductions. but before you get on stage, you see everything but that moments really. it is based on facts but it is our version this extraordinary man. >> the precursor to this was wat walter isaacson's book. the movie has a lot about his personal life, specifically his relationship with his first daughter. why that much on the personal life? >> that's right. that is the part that interested me, those conflicts. this isn't really an infantion story about inventing the mac or

8:38 am
do or the people who don't believe it. when make up your mind about something, you have to go forward. >> the idea that i think they reflect is that you say this is art. this is not journalism, this is not fact. it's art. but they feel that the public doesn't know the difference and the portrait you paint of their husband and former boss is not accurate. >> not flattering. >> it's not flattering. it's not inaccurate. first of all, i think it's very important to say that they haven't seen the movie. so whatever portrait they feel we paint, they are guessing at. >> did they read the script? >> no, they haven't. and they also, i think, are underestimating the audience in terms of being able to tell what is a painting and what is a photograph, what is art and what is journalism. the movie announces itself very
